We started this month with Eva Lynd and we'll end it with her too.

This is her on the cover of the record Emotions by Richard Shores and His Orchestra.

The record itself is kind of fascinating. It's a blend of easy listening, exotica and dramatic music that certainly suggests film scores but is not actually a score for anything.

The titles of the pieces make clear what moods to expect: "Love", "Hate", "Sorrow", "Gay", "Blues", "Surprise", "Frustration", "Nostalgia", "Fear" and "Hysteria".

"Sorrow" is particularly nice and actually lovelier than I would expect sorrow to sound.

It would be great to know who the musicians are on this.
